During my trip to Thailand in late September 2017 I made a series of soundscape recordings in the environs of Bangkok and Chiang Mai. These recordings are the core elements of what could be laughingly described as a ‘Christmas single’. Lost in Exotic Pastures is a 20min 36sec electronic ambient work which embraces various field recorded textures and electronically sourced sounds. Ebullient natural wildlife, rippling sub-tropical heat, incessant buzzing insects, lush dense vegetation and labyrinthine city realms seamlessly collide while the looming presence of this vast and enigmatic country haunts throughout this robust audio collage. The juxtapositions of feeling lost and found, the known and unknown are explored and beckon the listener to submerge and journey into this multitudinous recording. The single was mastered by Loz Gill at Fat As Funk Mastering. It will be released on Friday 22nd December 2017. An excerpt can be heard via SoundCloud. Lost in Exotic Pastures will be available to purchase and stream on numerous digital platforms.
